A Saudi millionaire who was accused of forcing himself on a teenage girl who had slept on his sofa in his apartment after a night out drinking was acquitted of rape charges after claiming he “accidentally tripped and fell on her, and somehow penetrated her,” according to The Independent.
The 18-year-old girl said she had woken up in the early hours of the morning with Ehsan Abdulaziz on top of her, forcing himself inside her.
Abdulaziz, 46, a property developer, said his penis might have been poking out of his underwear when he fell on the teen, the report states.
“He claimed he had gone to see if the young woman wanted a t-shirt to sleep in, or a taxi home. But he said she pulled him on top of her and placed his hand between her legs,” according to the Independent.
His semen and DNA was found inside the young woman, but he claimed it was possible he had semen on his hands from having sex with the teenager’s 24-year-old friend, whom he already knew, in the bedroom earlier.
In the evidence, Abdulaziz showed how the girl had put her hand behind his head to pull him towards her, which is how he says he fell.
“I’m fragile, I fell down but nothing ever happened, between me and this girl nothing ever happened,” he reportedly said.
Incredibly, he was absolved of any charges.
